Wassermans in DC!

Last night, we went out to dinner with my Aunt Rebekah, Uncle Mark and cousins, Jared and Aaron. We went to a Tapas place called Jaleo. We all had a great time and it was so fun to see them! We don't get to see them too often, so it was certainly a special treat. Aunt Rebekah, Jared and Aaron are up here with Uncle Mark this week while he works and has a few events to go to. After our dinner, they had to rush to a West Wing White House Tour!!! We hope to get to see them again while they are up here!

Memorial Day Weekend!

We had a fantastic Memorial Day Weekend! Friday night we went to dinner with our friend, Amanda Buckner, to Carlyle in Shirlington. It was fabulous! While we were waiting on her, we went to a little wine tasting presented by the maker of these wonderful Austrian wines!

Saturday we helped our friends the Marker's move to their new house and then hit the road to Annapolis with the Jeep top down! We went to Sandy Point Park in Annapolis to the "beach" there. It was great! We laid on the beach and played tailgate golf! We then returned to DC because my brother, Turner had finally arrived to live here for the summer! We went to the Nationals/Orioles game. Of course, the Nationals lost, but we had a great time!

Sunday we took my brother to our church and ran some errands.

Monday we had a Memorial Day picnic in Upton Hill park with our small group from church. We used our NEW gas grill we got from Justin's Dad, Alice and Catie for Christmas. It was a lot of fun and great to see everyone! Monday night we went to dinner for our friend Tafanie's birthday in Old Town.

All in all, a fantastic weekend! We are so glad to have Turner in town!

Justin gets a CEO Award!

I know that I should be better about posting on this, and I will be (It's my half year resolution!) I figured it was a great time to start posting again because Justin received his CEO Award for Volunteerism and Community Service!

Last night, we attended Alion's Annual CEO Awards Dinner because Justin was the recipient of the Volunteerism and Community Service Award! Two people out of his ENTIRE company of about 3,400 were presented with this award! We were seated at the front table and were joined by a handful of retired generals, including the head of Justin's contract and the Deputy Head of his contract! It was a lot of fun and a yummy dinner! :)

We are VERY proud of him! Here's a picture of him and me and his beautiful award!
